The Orthodox Church in Australia Rejoices

The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia expresses its profound joy and appreciation to the Great and Holy Church of Constantinople, in which it has the great honour and privilege to be under its canonical protection and oversight, for recently granting the blessing and approval of the new Constitution relating to the governance of our Holy Archdiocese and the institution of a Holy Eparchial Synod.

We are all extremely grateful to His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and the honourable Synodical Hierarchs of the Ecumenical Throne for granting this great blessing and gift upon our local Church at a time which coincides with the centenary celebrations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia (1924 – 2024).

With the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia, all parishes last month throughout the entire Archdiocese, on Meat-Fare Sunday and at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy, conducted a Thanksgiving Doxology Service to the Trinitarian God for this great benefaction of the Mother Church which continues to be a beacon of hope for the Orthodox Church and the entire Oikumene. This service coincided with the exact month in which the signing of the Tome of our local Church took place exactly 100 years prior by Ecumenical Patriarch Gregory VII, of blessed memory, and the Holy and Sacred Synod of Constantinople. The Doxology Service called upon the faithful to offer up praise and thanks to God for all the benefits and blessings bestowed upon our Holy Archdiocese over the past 100 years, known and unknown, manifest and hidden.

The Thanksgiving Service gave us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the inspiring words of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios that the Orthodox Church cannot exist without the Ecumenical Patriarchate and how for this reason we owe everything to the Mother Church of Constantinople. Our Theology and Ecclesiology originates from the only Great Church of Constantinople, and it was here that the Ecumenical Synods were convened. We must constantly remind ourselves how the Sacred Centre of Orthodoxy throughout history also gave birth to numerous Orthodox Churches…
